“I’m not saying that the games that were at Games 4 Change are bad games, nor am I suggesting that they shouldn’t be made; I’m very much in support of their development. I’m simply suggesting that serious games should loosen their focus on the context of their creation: it should be OK to label games as “serious” if they achieve a “serious” goal, rather than whether or not they’re created in a “serious” context. And then maybe the idea of a serious game being a good game will become the rule rather than the exception.”
